Rod Blum on Social Security
Both Republicans and Democrats have proposed ideas to save the program. Whether it's slightly increasing the income cap on the Social Security tax, allowing young Americans to opt in to private retirement savings accounts, means-testing benefits for wealthier Americans, or gradually raising the retirement age for people younger than 55, our politicians must come to the table in good faith and work out a bipartisan compromise.
If we acknowledge reality, and implement reform, we can ensure that Social Security will be around for our children. I'm not pretending it will be easy, but we need the courage to do the right thing.
